Facebook has no love for ad blockers

Facebook has no love for ad blockers

Plus, I talk about the state of social media marketing

Today's Episode

Ad blockers, the necessary evil of online browsing. Most people use it to do anything on the web. Ads have become a problem. They are disruptive to the flow of posts. There are full-page ads that disconnect the consumer from the content. Publishers and marketers created this mess. This is a big problem. My professional pushed people to use ad blockers. Now, Facebook has to do something drastic. They need to make sure people are seeing ads. This is where the majority of their revenue comes from. More ad blockers used, then no money generated. I may not like Facebook, but, I understand why they are doing it. I also talk about the state of social media marketing. It's similar to tech. There's a lot of new tech being used and video is the dominant medium for this space. The future is interesting.

Anyways, listen from more of my insight.
